News and more news at the newspaper

We wish to blame recent illness and lack of sleep for the inanity of this post.

The Union's webmaster was not aware that the Search was still hosed; we have provided examples, and hope that a solution will be forthcoming.
Feb 24 update:
No response, although we've sent a followup email asking for one. And no fix either.

Another job opportunity at The Union:
Become a vital news link to the Web

The Union, an innovative daily newspaper serving the scenic Sierra Nevada foothills communities of Nevada County, Calif., is seeking applicants for its newly created Web Editor position. Serving a wired, high-tech community, we already have one of the most-trafficked small-newspaper sites in the country. This editor will work closely with the news staff and the Webmaster to develop rich, interactive Web content that amplifies coverage appearing in our 17,000-circulation newspaper. The Web Editor will keep the site updated as news unfolds throughout the day and work with staff to create Web-exclusive content. Creativity, technical innovation, editing skills and writing talent all will be vital for this position. Help shape a dynamic new job in an exciting newsroom. Good benefits include 401K; salary in the $30,000 range, depending upon skills and experience. E-mail or send cover letter, resume and work samples to Pat Butler, Editor, The Union, 464 Sutton Way, Grass Valley, CA 95945; pat b @ th eun i on. com . [Spaces added out of concern for the welfare of M. Butler, who will be plenty besieged by Nevada County residents - unleashing the spammers would be over the top.] No phone calls, please. Deadline is March 15.

So, for those of you who were dying to know the name of The Union's new editor, you can recuperate now.
